It's time to create your Important Documents Folder!

So we’ve all heard it. Be Prepared! But our lives are busy and we say “I’ll get around to it” and we just don’t find the time. Stop delaying and promise me that you will get one thing accomplished this month. Create your families “Important Documents Folder." This is so IMPORTANT! It doesn't have to be complicated. It's simply a folder with a list of all your important information and copies of important documentation. I recommend dividing your documents up into categories. Below is a list to get you started.

March: Time to take a hike!

The temperatures this week, social distancing and fewer bugs make it a great time for a hike. It's the perfect time to get outside and discover the amazing trails our area has to offer.

How often should you service your HVAC system?

Your Heating, Ventilating, and Air-Conditioning system (HVAC) maintenance will not only save you money on energy, it will also extend it's lifespan which will save money on early replacement. But how often and what type of maintenance does your system require? Even if you don't suspect any problems with your system, it's a good idea to have it inspected, serviced and cleaned once a year to ensure that it works at peak energy efficiency.
